|Custom gumpaste (sugar) flower arrangement|
This brings me to the question should you have fresh or gumpaste flowers on your cake?
Some reasons to consider having gumpaste flowers
If a flower is out of season and you really want it
If you are looking for a flower in a particular color you can't find
You would like a custom flower possibly a cross between a couple of flowers
You would like something different
They can last indefinitely if handled properly
They make a great keepsake
You can even gift them to someone else
They are very nice to have on display
Cost of course is another factor when purchasing any item. Just keep in mind.
Fresh flowers can't be compared to custom gumpaste flowers and custom gumpaste flowers can't be compared to pre-made gumpaste flowers. It is all preference and what you are looking for.
